For Today... August 24th, 2015

Outside my window... Blue skies, with big puffy clouds

I am thinking... that I need to get my butt up and moving, as none of the housework is going to get done sitting here.

I am thankful... for fellowship time with the ladies from my church. We had an awesome time last night.

I am wearing... black capri yoga pants, a black tshirt, a coral tank top and this pretty infinity scarf

I am creating... still working on the craft show stock pile - rice heating bags, cup/mug cozies, towels/dishcloths and doll clothes.

I am going... to Dollar General, Family Dollar and the Dollar Tree to search for some more Fall decor!

I am reading... nothing at the moment

I am hoping... to have the kitchen project done this week!

I am learning... that I just need to go with the flow, with how my hubby does things. Even if it sets my cleaning/clutter free style into a tizzy!

In my garden... I have lots of weeding to do. I haven't done a thing outside all summer and it is really showing. Ugh!

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ baked ziti, garlic bread and a salad
Tuesday ~ ham/egg bake
Wednesday ~ leftovers
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ nacho deluxe
Saturday ~ burgers, fries and fruit

A favorite quote for today...

One of my favorite things... Finding new things for my Fall decor (on the cheap ~ this is all from the Dollar Tree! I have more, just not pictured)

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ laundry, sweeping/mopping, vacuuming, prepping the kitchen walls
Tuesday ~ hopefully painting the kitchen walls!
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ groceries, going to the beach with friends, then home to work on the kitchen
Saturday ~ the hubby is going to a gun show with our oldest and his dad, me not sure yet
Sunday ~ church and maybe out for a drive.... if the weather is nice

From the board room... From my Fall ~ My favorite season board.
